Murillo received many commissions from religious order, and this is one such painting. It depicts Saint Isidore of Seville, pensively reading a large copy of the bible, golden staff in hand. You can see the careful golden embroidery on the Saint’s robe, and the cross hanging from his neck looks as if it is made of pure gold. This painting is a beautiful example of Murillo’s ability to portray a realistic, yet flattering image of the clergy, which is one of the reasons why he was so sought after as a commissioned artist.
